A205 - Digital Archive From Scratch

4:15 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.
Solomon Blaylock, Access Services Librarian, Woodbury University

A chance conversation with a grad student in 2017 led to a partnership in building a digital archive of video interviews, transcripts, and still images designed to fill an important gap in military policy research. The team started small, and a willing librarian quickly found himself in deep waters, tasked with designing a full project plan, including ingestion workflows, a metadata schema, and an Omeka exhibit. This presentation maps the project from its inception to the present and highlights valuable resources collected from far-flung sources to provide a template for librarians interested in facilitating similar digital humanities projects.
